    Can edging be dangerous? I was talking to my older brother the other day, and we were talking about beating off. He said he has been "edging" a lot lately, sometimes for 1-6 hours. Lately though, his orgasms aren't as intense, and barely any semen comes out.

    Could all of this edging be having a negative affect on his "plumbing?" I told him I knew of a forum where I could ask (although I didn't tell him about lpsg specifically), so hopefully someone can provide some insight here. he is a little older than me (31) but he isn't WAY old, so I doubt it's an age thing.

    thanks guys!

    I don't know of any way you can hurt yourself by edging. The question is how many times does he jo?

    On the contrary, sophomore19.

    For me, edging has resulted in greater sensitivity, better control, and the ability to last longer when I'm with someone. Plus it feels amazing to reach that point when you're riding the edge, throbbing, having what amounts to one super-long orgasm.

    I also get tons of sticky precum (great to taste, play with and use as lube), and shoot huge long-distance loads all over my face and behind my head after a good edging session.

    I don't know what your bro is doing, but I don't see any danger in it.

    Prior to edging I use to be a 1min man and now I can easily go for an hour without cumming. its good and bad, bad because sometimes I want a quickie but, i know its not gonna happen.

    Interesting question...I edge on occasion. Sometimes forty minutes, but the other day I edge with buds, two days in a row. On the first day, I edged for about ninety minutes, and I shot long distance...several feet...when I eventually came. Then on the second day, although I produced tons of precum, I barely shot any semen after the ninety minute session. The day after I did a quickie, and just did a trickle...It was the first time I had edged two days in a row for that long, and I think it stressed my equipment. I took a break for a few days, and returned to normally timed sessions, and regular cumming. My body was not used to the serial edging...and clearly the equipment needed time to recover. So YES, I would say be observant, listen to your body, and not to overdo anything.

    Anything can be dangerous, if you abuse it. The problem with edging for such long periods of time is that you could eventually condition yourself to require massive amounts of stimulation just to orgasm. A lot of things play into this- your grip tension, how many times you push off from the PONR, and your mindset during the exercise.

    If you can maintain a rock-hard erection through a 20 minute edging session (while pushing off approaches from the PONR), you will have established a great deal if stamina and control. The key to successful edgingis in retaining enough sensitivity to be able to approach the PONR a few times, but enough stamina to maintain the erection and enough control to get through the session.

    I've had similar results: the ability to last longer when I'm with someone & I shoot huge long-distance loads all over my face, which I love to do when I'm not with someone.

    Only conjecture on my part, maybe he has developed retrograde ejaculations - ejaculation backwards into the bladder. If so, then beltboy's advice, to ease off for a few days and masturbate normally, will re-establish the normal ejaculation process.

    Edging definately gives me a dull pain in my nuts if I do it too long, however it doesn't last long.
    It's kind of a sacrifice too, I shoot gallons, but the orgams always seem waay less instense then just quickly knocking one out

    I routinely edge for anywhere from 3-6 hours, occasionally much longer. This has been a common practice going back at least 17 years now and I've never experienced any negative side effect except, occasionally, the feeling that I've wasted a day.

    lol@ Bbucko. I know the feeling. Imagine sitting in front of your PC for 5 hrs jerking and not cumming. And into hour 6 you try to cum and you can't but you're hard. So you go into porn overload just to blow the load and when you do it's magnificent and huge!!!

    That's what I call "upping the ante". Overcoming a plateau can be maddening :wink:

    I can't see any negative effects. That's all I do and I believe it gives you great stamina and control as mentioned. I do have alot of precum also like someone else mentioned maybe it is caused by it?

    I have a general question. Apparently, the seminal vesicles are not sperm reservoirs. So, where does all the sperm during edging build up and stay before it is shot out? There must be some part of the system that enlarges temporarily.

    I was used to edge a lot when I was 16 or 17 and sometimes more than 2 hours when I had no risk to be disturbed:i.e at night in my bed. But at the same time I was also used to have much quicker wank every morning. I never found that edging often was reducing or altering my morning pleasure. Of course, after long time edging and experiencing few dry orgasms(these fantastic spams you fee right under your balls) if you try to have a full orgasm you ll be disapointed as there is almost nothing left. Now I don't do it that often but it gave me a perfect or at least better control of my orgasm. No riks for your brother nor for you.
    Cheers

    Sperm is not a fluid and only comes from your testicles. The three glands responsible for the fluid is the seminal vesicle, prostate gland and the cowpers gland. Here is a link to a neat little flash thingy that will show you how it works and where the cum comes from and the sperm and all that good stuff. Health Animation - Male Reproductive System
    Just scroll down and it will start on its own. I also found an awful you tube video that explains how it works. The information is good but the woman is awful and should probably not have been chewing gum while she made it. here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCXG_ZfqAks

    The one dangerous outcome of edging that I've experienced is in my wrists. Ended up with carpal tunnel syndrome problems in both wrists thanks to too much jacking. (Followed by years of keyboard overuse, but I think the jacking pushed me over the edge into chronic pain.) Fleshlight has helped spare my poor sore wrists, and I'm now pain-free. But it was a surprise to find that in late middle age, retired with lots of time on my hands, my dick and libido seem to have no limits but my wrists apparently have already had a lifetime's worth of abuse.

    is tantric sex a form of edging? i can't do it for too long as my balls end up hurting so bad,like blue balls that i have to stop or cum. does this stop if one continues to edge over time. i hear if you don't ejaculate it gives you more energy, as in tantric sex.:confused:

    I don't think edging is dangerous unless you happen to be doing so while driving or operating power equipment. :wink:
